During his son Aryan’s month-long stint with the NCB and subsequent jail, Shah Rukh Khan did not shoot. As a result, the actor’s upcoming YRF Studios action-thriller Pathan, starring Deepika Padukone and John Abraham, has suffered a knock. And John’s Ayyappanum Koshiyum replica has felt the knock-on effect of this. It was supposed to hit the floors in January 2022, but it’s been postponed, according to reports.
John will now be working with Pathan until March 2022, according to PeepingMoon. As a result, his action movie Ayyappanum Koshiyum has been pushed back in the calendar due to a casting change and scheduling concerns. According to sources, director Jagan Shakti had completed the last recce and was set to begin filming on January 20. He’s now hunting for new dates.
Arjun Kapoor, John’s co-star in the Malayalam version, has offered Ayyappanum Koshiyum dates that will be affected by the abrupt cancellation of the shoot. The film was set to premiere in September, with John and Abhishek Bachchan taking over for Biju Menon and Prithviraj Sukumaran, respectively. However, Abhishek dropped out due to scheduling conflicts, and Arjun stepped in. The production was postponed until January 2022 due to a casting change.
